  • some people on the net already use a cd(), but most of them break 'cd -' functionality, that is "go back where you have been previosly", or 'cd' which is "go back home". This cd() copes with that. Also when given a file name, go to the directory where this file is in. cd() { if [[ -n ${*} ]] then if [[ s${*}e == s-e ]] then builtin cd - elif [[ ! -d ${*} ]] then builtin cd "${*%/*}" else builtin cd "${*}" fi else builtin cd ~ fi ls -la }

  • Simply sourcing .bashrc does not function correctly when you edit it and change an alias for a function or the other way round with the *same name*. I therefor use this function. Prior to re-sourcing .bashrc it unsets all aliases and functions.
